What we're about

As a living art over 2000 years old, Byzantine chant is a cultural tradition and music system belonging to the eastern Roman Empire. Created to elevate the recitation of the Psalter in the Eastern Orthodox Church, it is exclusively vocal, employing other worldly rhythmic styles and modes. Byzantine music continues to flourish in the modern world through the dedication of experts and non-experts alike, lured by its novelty, antiquity, and musical integrity. Addicting and elegant, this musical art has captured the imagination of generations. Interested in learning or just listening in? Join us!
